This weekend, we remember all our fallen soldiers in wars past and present. We also try and forget another winter. A rather brutal one I might add. It’s funny, one great day on the water and you can forget the countless snow storms and frozen pipes.. I had not been able to go boating until yesterday for all sorts of reasons.
Our 24 Sportsman, had been sitting in the barn for a while and previously up at Katzs Marina getting part of her annual refresh and touch up from all my oops moments last summer. Well, around 9AM were got her into the water. A couple cranks and she lit up like she had been waiting as long as I had to go boating. That monster van Ness big block just purred like a tiger all day. We went through an entire tank of fuel. We did let her soak up though until around 1PM and got home around 7. The weather was PERFECT here in Reedville VA. No humidity, jelly fish or wind. 75 degrees. It just does not get better. The boatress even decided it was time for a swim with Oreo.
I don’t think Oreo had set out for a swim. But that’s the way it goes sometimes. I hope all your weekends boating time was a wonderful as ours. Share with us in the comment section! Keep the pics under 1 mg or they wont load!
